John Illsley of Dire Straits: Wednesday 9th October at Paris 15, Calle la Orotava, Malága. As one of the founding band members, with guitarist brothers Mark and David Knopfler, and drummer Pick Withers, Illsley played a role in the development of Dire Straits’ sound. By the time the group disbanded in 1995 changes in personnel meant that Illsley and lead singer Mark Knopfler were the only two original band members remaining. Illsley was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Dire Straits in 2018.
Illsley has produced two albums of his own, with Mark Knopfler as a guest musician, and has helped with Mark’s personal projects and charities.
John will be appearing with his own band with guitarist Robbie McIntosh (The Pretenders, Paul McCartney John Mayer), he will be playing Dire Straits classics as well as songs from his latest solo album, ‘Long shadows’. Info&Tix

-Foxit PDF Software Company Suffers Data Breach—Asks Users to Reset Password. A popular free alternative to Adobe Reader, if you have an online account with Foxit Software, you need to reset your account password immediately—as an unknown attacker has compromised your personal data and log-in credentials. If you use the program/app but do not have an account then you have nothing to worry about. https://thehackernews.com/2019/08/foxit-pdf-reader-data-breach.html
-Hidden, Long-term iOS Hack Revealed, Again: Your iPhone can be hacked just by visiting an innocent-looking website, confirms a terrifying report Google researchers released earlier today. The attack was being carried out through hacked websites, targeting every iOS user landing on those websites. The iPhone exploits were used to deploy an implant primarily designed to steal files like iMessages, photos, and live GPS location data of users, and upload them to an external server every 60 seconds. The spyware implant also stole the database files from the victim’s device used by popular end-to-end encryption apps like Whatsapp, Telegram, and iMessage to store data, including private chats in the plaintext. ” Also vulnerable, the long-lived tokens used by services such as Google’s iOS Single-Sign-On to enable Google apps to access the user’s account. These will be uploaded to the attackers and can then be used to maintain access to the user’s Google account, even once the implant is no longer running” Apple already patched the majority of vulnerabilities exploited by the uncovered iPhone exploits, users are always recommended to keep their devices up-to-date to avoid becoming victims of such attacks. https://thehackernews.com/2019/08/hacking-iphone-ios-exploits.html



5 kittens born about April time, need homes: They are living wild with their mother in and around a garden in a residential home for old and ill people in Velez Malaga . The owners don’t want them and I’m concerned for their future. The mother has now been spayed and I plan to catch the kittens very soon to be castrated/ spayed etc . I don’t want to have to put them back after.
There are 3 identical tabby’s ( 2 are definitely boys) and 2 identical black cats. I have been feeding them for months now so they look healthy. I can’t take them because I have dogs.
Please email me if you could give any a home.
Thank you. Jennifer/Nerja
